The Eiger sanction

Jonathan Hemlock is a professor of art history who formerly had a deadly secret life; he was a hired assassin working with an international intelligence organization. Hemlock is forced by blackmail to perform one last hit, or, as the organization euphemistically calls it, a 'sanction.' The victim will be one of three men attempting a dangerous ascent of the Eiger. While Hemlock is an experienced mountaineer and willing to make the climb, he's troubled to discover that he does not know which of the other three men scaling the Eiger is his true target.
